Hostess stabs host in Kabukicho hotel

TOKYO (TR) – A bar hostess stabbed a host in Tokyo’s Kabukicho entertainment district following a dispute early yesterday morning, reports Yukan Fuji (Sep. 2).

At around 3:35 a.m. on Sep. 1, a 25-year-old host, which is a male club entertainer, was stabbed in the chest and back with a stationery knife by a hostess employed at a sex-related club, according to Tokyo Metropolitan Police.

The 27-year-old, a resident of Kawasaki, was arrested for attempted murder. “I could see on his phone that he was communicating with other women, so I panicked, and then stabbed him,” she is quoted as saying by police.

The suspect was taken into custody after a separate woman called the hotel’s front desk and the police were alerted.
